“8 The Holy Spirit was showing by this that the way into the Most Holy Place had not yet been disclosed as long as the first tabernacle was still functioning. 9 This is an illustration for the present time, indicating that the gifts and sacrifices being offered were not able to clear the conscience of the worshiper. 10 They are only a matter of food and drink and various ceremonial washings—external regulations applying until the time of the new order.”
The Book of Hebrews is one of the most interesting and challenging books of the Bible, and for the next nine months, we are going to be exploring this book as a part of Cornerstone University at Cornerstone Church in Bethalto, IL.
You can tune in on your own on Friday’s when the class audio is released. You can also download the class notes online at BethaltoChurch.com/hebrews!
